Changes should be followed by maturity

[dropcap font=”0″]C[/dropcap]hange is happening every second, not only over the course of years.  Both physical and mental processes arise and disappear continuously. However, these changes should bear maturity if we are to see a better world.
Age is no guarantee of maturity. Maturity can be measured through someone’s thinking, speaking and acting on feelings within the bounds of dignity. French philosopher Henri-Louis Bergson said, “To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.”
Maturity is to understand cause and effect and to avoid harming others. We experience life in all possible ways— good or bad, better or sweet, dark or light, summer or winter. We cannot avoid effects or results from root causes.
We need to solve any problem or confrontation maturely, without resorting to aggression, which can provoke retaliation. Fighting cannot ensure lasting peace. Disputes cannot be settled by power or dominance. Problems and experiences are challenges in life. These can help us develop maturity.
Change over a year or an age does not define maturity. Together with tolerance, maturity is demonstrated by the manner in which we opt to treat those who mistreat or misunderstand us. Different people have experienced different situations in life. Their actions will be coloured by such experiences. Psychologically, experiences may drive someone’s action and behaviour.
Hatred, grudges and insults are signs of immaturity. The lack of maturity will not result in a developing environment. A better future can only be guaranteed when people can develop a mature mindset. The number of years or birthdays we celebrate cannot give us maturity. But we can develop maturity by seeking to understand ourselves and others.
